I have no doubt this is an old subject. I also have no doubt that people who "revenge kill" team mates, probably don't even come to this board.
But for those who might, here's some advice - DON'T DO IT!
I probably kill a team mate (on accident) at least once a match. Wether it's because I got trigger happy, or because the team mate ran in front of my gun as I was shooting. But I've made it a point to personally look at those situations (that is, if a team mate kills me) as an accident. I don't go seeking revenge. It may make you feel better - for a moment - but you aren't helping the team win the match!
I understand there's trolls in a lot of the matches. But it's easy to know if someone shot you by accident or on purpose because they'll keep trolling you. Believe me, if I kill you on accident once and you come running back at me, I can easily kill you a second time on purpose.
Bottom line - don't seek revenge on team mates. Always assume it was an accident and continue after the real enemy. It does no one any good and might even get you kicked from the game. And that certainly doesn't help the team.
maybe insta-banning should be in place for when one teammates team kill, then revenge kill?
Yes, let's insta-ban everyone !! That nmakes perfect sense !!
it happens. but..
when i shoot an enemy, right in front of my team mate and he takes the tags, and this happens more than once: i shoot him.
when a team mate shoots me then tries to take my care package, i shoot him.
when i'm in a clearing, as is my team mate.. and he shoots me, i shoot him.
if i'm coming around a corner, i'm behind an object, he/she is flashbanged/emp'ed/etc i do not shoot back.
There's no way you can just ASSUME that it's ALWAYS a mistake...because it's often quite obviouse that it is indeed on
I agree, roc. BUT, if the guy did it on purpose, he'll do it again - then you know he's a troll. At that point, I find him and try to get him to shoot me again so he'll get kicked.
When I accidentally team kill, I actually EXPECT that the guy is gonna come after me. I don't talk on the mike, so I don't try to apologize that way (maybe I should, but some people don't want to hear that, either). So if they come back, I'll just let them do what they want to do if it makes them feel better. I do feel bad when it happens and I'm sure the team mate was probably on some sort of incredible score streak (I also don't think it's fair that your score streak gets reset on team kills, but that's another topic that's been hammered here before). I guess, bottom line is people are gonna do what they're gonna do.
But I'm making it official here:
If I ever team kill you, it was an accident!! Sorry!!
I think my all time favorite team kills are when you have the death machine and your own team mate decides that at THAT EXACT MOMENT is a good time to run directly in front of you.. There isn't a weapon less controllable when you are firing at an enemy than that and that is usually when I end up with a TK.
This is why I took off my care package score streak, getting killed by a team mate leech and having to watch them control the fruits of my labour made me go purple at times!
I shot stupid teammates quite often. If they steal my tag, I shoot them. If I can tell they are going to steal my tag, I shoot them. If they keep running in front of me while I'm in a firefight I shoot them. And every time I shoot one, they try and find me to shoot me back.. that's just the way it is. People are dumb , if I get kicked for killing moron teammates, I can find another game.
Off topic: mods, could you please fix the website. A big flashing red bar every five seconds is pretty annoying. We don't need auto save.
Best one is killing a teammate who is on the Mic when his care package drops yes I know its tight but at the end of the day its hilarious as fuck hearing them rage for the rest of the game specially adults.
